Late Autumn is a quiet time at The Huntington, and it will allow you ample opportunity to explore its library and art galleries. A recent expansion of the Scott Galleries is exhibiting Becoming America, a major display of early American art. More than 200 works from the Fielding collection of 18th- and 19th-century American art works, including paintings, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, metal, needlework, and other decorative arts will be on display. Also, The Huntington is continuing is exhibition Visual Voyages, which surveys the connection among art, science, and the environment in Latin America from the voyages of Columbus to the publications of Charles Darwin in the mid-19th century. The exhibition features approximately 100 objects that are drawn from the library, art, and garden holdings.
